A big first post for the forum, so my apologies in advance.
I am in the process of upgrading from my existing kit to something better, however, I would love to hear some input from you guys (especially those who have experience with both systems).

Does anyone have a pro printer where they use 3rd party inks? I've a Canon Pro100S and the inks are damn expensive especially since I need to replace them all this time due to not printing in a long time.

Its been a few years since I sold up all my Canon 70D and lenses but Im missing a proper camera after using my phone for family shots. Question is what are people now buying? It was always Canon and Nikon with a little Sony and others behind but I feel the game has changed a little. I also used...
Hello everyone :wave:. I'm Steve from Edinburgh and new to this forum. I've joined because I'm confused and looking for help / opinion / clarity. Here's my problem ... I was a Canon fanboy for years with the 5DMkII and 24-70mm f2.8L II being my absolute go to combo. I then started shooting more...
The reputable review sites seem to speak highly enough of this lens optically that I'm considering it over Canon's 135mm
Has anyone had any experience with this lens on a Canon. I'm primarily interested in its ability to focus. I know that razor thin depth of field brings its own issues...

I have found that with the 18-55 I am missing shots as I don't have the chance to get close enough to the...

Been interested in photography for quite a few years, but only recently (two years ago) began to take it seriously....seem to have a bit more spare time on my hands of late....don't ask!! :D...
